Help With Kerry's Cancer Treatment

Hello Everyone! Firstly, I thank ypu for even clicking this link and showing an interest in this GoFundMe. My mom, Kerry Furey, is currently undergoing treatment for stage 3 colorectal cancer. She has undergone chemotherapy and radiation and on March 12, she will have a serious surgery to remove the mass from her colon. Since she was diagnosed on July 7, 2017, I have witnessed my fiercely independent mother bravely and strongly fight for her life. Now heres where she needs your help.. Since being diagnosed, Kerry has been unable to work. My mom is a nurse that loves her job and being unable to work due ro cancer was a big hit emotionally and financially. She has applied for temporary disability benefits and Social Security disability, but she has not received any payment in the past 2 months. She is currently waiting on a judgement from temporary disability that can take another 5 to 7 weeks. She is also paying almost $700 a month to keep her health insurance through COBRA. Even with Private health insurance, she is still responsible for 30% of her surgery costs plus co-pays, along with her mortgage and other expenses. This is the disclaimer, my mother was incredibly against doing this. She is not the one to ask for help, she is always the one to offer it. But I finally convinced her that it's okay to accept help when needed and right now Kerry needs your help. I'm hoping to raise some funds for her to help offset the cost of her medical expenses. A little backstory on my mom, she raised me as a single parent after my father died when I was 4 years old. She literally is the most amazing woman in the world. I know times are tough for everyone financially, anything helps. Even if you can't donate every share will count. Thank you in advance for any help that one may be able to give. And please continue the prayers for my mom.
